Opening the Borders

Publisher: Level 4 Press, Inc.

Illegal immigration. About the only agreement in the vitriolic debate is that it's one of America's thorniest hot-button issues and will play a pivotal role in the 2008 presidential election. But right now, politicians are tap-dancing around the topic with few solutions. So the big question remains: Is there a logical and humane solution that benefits the United States and Mexico? Renowned journalist and author Larry Blasko dives head-first into this raging controversy. "You have one side shouting 'Deport Them!' and the other side shouting 'Love Them!'" says Blasko. "But the reality is hand-wringing and finger-pointing solve nothing. A logical solution could be implemented by now with all the energy both sides have expended screaming for extreme measures." "With political irreverence as refreshing as the new ideas he proposes, Larry Blasko tells why and how to make the U.S.-Mexico border more open and at the same time more secure against illegal crossings. " -Walter Mears, Pulitzer Prize winning political reporter
